Stephen Colbert Strikes Again

A few weeks ago, Stephen Colbert, the host of the infamous "Colbert Report" on Comedy Centra, interview the head of the Human Rights Campaign, Joe Solomonese, and hilarity insued as Solomonese engaged in some witty banter with the host.

Last week, Colbert reached across to the other side on the gay marriage issue when he interviewed Tony Perkins, the President of the right-wing Family Research Council. In my opinion, hilarity again insued, although Perkins was more of a recipient than a participant.

I link it here because I think satire, which this interview was, is often a good way of exposing just how silly a particular view of an issue is. I believe Colbert does just that here to the right-wing opposition to same-sex marriage.

Enjoy, thanks to PageOneQ.
